Correction: Maltese Knight-Pirate-Samurai-Ninjas

In a previous post, I compared (or implied the comparison) the Knights of Malta in terms of their massive awesomeness to ninjas. On sober reflection, it occurs to me that the proper and more accurate comparison, because of their swordsmanship and their brilliant navigational and naval warfare skills, is to pirate-ninjas. (They wear black and have ships. Full stop.) In fact, in cold, hard, objective terms, during their days of attacking the Ottoman fleet, they effectively were pirate-ninjas, or at even something like pirate-Shaolin monk-samurai-ninjas.* Which makes it even more awesome. Okay, maybe ninja-privateers.

That is all.

*Okay, no more for me.
